Out to launch.
In this episode, YVote hits the LNP and ALP campaign launches. We find out if it’s impolite to speak about politics at the dinner table. And will you be voting on policy or personality? The results are in! The final YVote of the series is a Live Election Night 2012 Extravaganza.
Who gives a frack?
It’s a bumper edition of YVote this week. We catch up with three young candidates and find out whether age has wearied them, or lack of years, condemned. Lock the Gate Activist, Drew Hutton, explains why we should “give a frack” about Coal Seam Gas and we catch up with former Queensland Premier, Peter Beattie, on the hustings.
On the hustings with Katter and Kate.
In the first week of the campaign, our YVote reporters hit Katter’s Australia Party launch and cross paths with Premier Anna Bligh at Keep Kate HQ. Dr Zala Volcic explains the importance of participatory democracy and why we should vote. And we find out how political parties are using the social media space.
